ARNOLD, Mo. (KMOX) – All appears to be normal at the Metal Container Corporation in Arnold after a major fire had firefighters battling flames until the early morning hours.

Fire crews left early Wednesday morning once the flames were put out. No damage is visible from the outside of the building, as everything happened indoors.

A canning service may have caught fire on the top floor of the facility around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, and then spread to the rest of the building, leading to the five-alarm fire.

Everyone inside the building was able to get out safely, with no injuries. One firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion, but that person is expected to be OK.

Metal Container Corporation makes cans for Anheuser-Busch and other companies.
